>>> let me finish tonight with this. i end where i began, the obama doctrine at home and abroad. imagine another president speaking with pride and connection with seneca falls and selma and stonewall. imagine another president wrapping himself into the very history of struggle for women, for blacks, for gay people, all with the kind of historic celebration. yes, we've come far. now let's go to distance. the word here by the way is we. not them, not those people. didn't hear any of that yesterday from up on the capitol steps. didn't hear fighters for women being described as humorless suffragettes. didn't hear gay people standing up for their right to be here on god's earth as the odd people out. no, they all belong here. they are among us. they are of us, a good and worthy part of us. again, it was an astounding speech. an ich beinun berliner. >>> welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the conservatives are whining about president obama's speech. it's just too liberal. i say welcome to the mainstream. let's get to work. >> it's morning again in america. >> the era of liberalism
like president lincoln before him, president obama listed a series of things that we all take for granted today that the constitution did not provide for. such as a huge standing army, the biggest one in the world. we have shown you before on this program how much modern day republicans disagree with their hero, ronald reagan on everything from tax increases to death ceiling increases to banning assault weapons. the only thing they claim to admire as much as him, is the first president, lincoln, if they heard lincoln say this in the first inaugural address they would have booed him. "no organic law can ever be framed with the provision applicable to every situation. no foresight can anticipate nor any document of reasonable length contain express provisions for all possible questions. that is abraham lincoln calling the constitution organic law. and saying that the constitution could not possibly have anticipated our every governing question. i invite you to imagine if you will, just close your eyes and just imagine the right wing . . >>> welcome to "the ed show" from new york

president obama first took office. but hold on. when democrats were in the minority and threatening to filibuster against george w. bush's judicial nominees, their leader, harry reid, had some kind things to say about the tactic. >> the filibuster serves as a check on power and preserves our limited government. right now the only check on president bush is the democrats' ability to voice their concern in this body, the senate. if the republicans roll back our rights in this chamber, there will be no check on power. the radical right wing will be free to pursue anything they want. >> now the shoe is on the other foot. i asked larry crane to discuss the double standard. 700,000 workers and many industries including media and telephone data services and health care. but that's just his day job. larry co hen is also a leader of the democracy initiative, a coalition as progressive and varied as the naacp, common cause, the sierra club, greenpeace, jobs with justice and the afl-cio. along with an affiliated campaign called fix the senate now, they are working hard to change the filibuster

can change this country as president obama talked about in 2008, you know, the change you can believe in, the change you'll work for. >> what's president obama done for labor in these last four years? >> well, i think he's tried to do quite a bit. i think in his heart he definitely supports, you know, working families. you know, part of the outcome piece, is what gets through the u.s. congress. so he definitely supported health care bill much more like speaker pelosi's tn what we ended up getting through the senate finance committee onto the senate floor and eventually adopted a year later. he definitely supported workers' rights legislation. he definitely supported much more aggressive moves to stop the foreclosures. he definitely supported climate change. so part of this is really, you know, we would love to see more active white house support for these democracy initiatives so that the change that i'm sure he still believes in had some reality to it instead of just, you know, on the back bench somewhere. >> did he fight hard enough? i don't want to put you on the spot -- yeah, i wa
next. >> john: breitbart.com said obama's inaugural speech was an attack on liberty as we know it. oh gay people shouldn't be allowed to get married. the filibuster, the magical tool that proves democracy is when 45 senators get to control the other 55. and bill o'reilly said obama's desire for social justice was noble but it won't solve our fiscal problems because you know that requires an entire cable news propaganda network who touted the fake war. today is the birthday of the late great sam cook and steve perry who sang "don't stop believin'" before journey stopped him. this is "viewpoint." >> john: good evening. i'm john fuglesang. thank you for joining us this evening for "viewpoint." on today's 40th anniversary of the historic roe vs. wade decision legalizing abortion rights the pro-choice community has a lot to be thankful for and quite a bit to fear on another. let's start with the thankful stuff first. sure the mandatory anti-rowe protest took place in cities like huntsville, alabama. even in huntsville, pro-choice protestors were out and waving their signs today. go alabama

bronx section, unthinkable. and barack obama became president of the united states. >> you had stinging things to say about the republican party. an identity problem, you said. and that there are some people who seem to have a theme of intolerance. >> that's a broader definition of what i meant by intolerance. i think intolerance is when you try to keep people from voting. the republican party ought to be out there, not by restricting voting by requiring i.d., but wanting everybody to vote. you need new messages. new policies. the country is becoming more minority. >> have you heard a lot from that? a lot of people pushing back on you? >> most of the people i've heard from in the last week or so have been very, very supportive. but there are those who consider this the worst thing imaginable. and why are you still a republican? i grew up under ronald reagan, and george schultz, and george herbert walker bush, and that's the republican party i knew. i think we've drifted from that. there's nothing wrong starting to drift a little bit back. not because it's good to be moderate. but that's
example, take for example president obama's inaugural address this week. conservatives of course were outraged that it was such a liberal speech. liberals were delighted that it was such a liberal speech. and everybody agreed that it was such a profoundly liberal speech that the president gave for his second inaugural address. and it wasn't just liberal in the abstract. it was liberal in the specific, in the sense that he proposed and endorsed a whole bunch of liberal policy ideas. like for example, his endorsement in the speech of marriage equality. it was a big moment in the speech, right? because no president had ever talked about gay people before, ever before in any inaugural address. it was also a landmark thing for this president, who did not publicly support same-sex marriage rights until well into his time being president. but there it was right in the inaugural address, calling for marriage equality. right there in the inaugural address. that is freaking liberal. also, that is the majority view held by most americans. the nbc/"wall street journal" poll that came out last mon
of whole foods thought obama-care was socialism. now he thinks it's fascism. now the produce in his store the man likes to keep his ignorance fresh. thom hartmann joins us on this. and today is the birthday of l.a. mayor antonio villaraigosa, and late e street bande boardist dan dan and the guy who played macgyver and today is the 276th birthday of john hancock whose last words were, hey i didn't sign on for this. this is "viewpoint." >> good evening i'm john fugelsang. thank you some forgoing us tonight. the 216th presidential campaign kicked off today. just after president obama took a public oath of office to start his second term in the white house. today secretary of state hillary clinton testified for the second time before stepping down for well-deserved rest. the topic, of course, it was the the 2011 2011 benghazi attack in libya that killed four americans including ambassador stevens. they were waiting for hillary clinton so they could forward the love of chris christie that they hate. today secretary clinton was wrapping up her current job with this forth right testimony. >> as

address. mr. obama's worst term a lot of evidence of the peril to the planet. record-breaking heat waves, forest fires, disappearing polar ice in a court with the prediction of the climate scientists. the effects were happening faster and more severely than predicted. you do not have to believe the scientists while reasserting american global energy leadership. even balancing the budget will be easier with this initiative. congress and the administration should begin conversation about a broad-based carbon tax. this would give the right signals on energy sources and use. it could raise money to reduce the deficit, restore our infrastructure, speed and finance conservation. there are a number of other commonsense steps that would make progress on carbon pollution and energy conservation goals more significant. the epa should stop dragging its feet permitting old coal plants to continue to spew forth toxic waste, harming the environment and the health of our citizens. it is past time the clean air act reinforced. make sure there are proper safeguards for the cracking technology. make sure

" with the obama administration, who are staying anonymous because they fear retribution or fear from the white house. this whole thing just seems off, right? i mean there are obviously two intentions with setting it up like this. they're trying to convey the impression that this is a white house who attacks and tears up anybody who disagrees with them. that is the way the right likes to think about this white house, that is the way they operate. they may be more effective if they did, but that is not what they do. more broadly, they're asserting there is broad opposition to chuck hagel, we're just not allowed to know who it is. i'm not buying it it, i say bull-pucky, i might be wrong, but i call bull-pucky. and if i am wrong, there is an easy way to prove it. come out, come out, whoever you are. if you are not bill crystal or somebody like that, i'll be the first to admit i'm wrong. but i don't think i'm wrong. this is not a liberal group, it is a right-wing group, you're trying to look like liberals and we can tell. that does it for us, we'll see you monday night. now it is time for "the last
controlled red states ought to be looking at. he is talking about states president obama won, which are controlled by republican legislatures. former rnc chair haley barbour tried to downplay the scheme to rig the electoral college, but he admitted it could affect the outcome of a race. >> you know, i am a traditionalist myself. i really am a conservative. i'm a little bit skeptical of this. but i also am a little bit skeptical that you can predict with any sort of precision who it will really help from one presidential election to another. >> so it's okay if the loser of a presidential race actually wins because both parties will eventually get screwed? very patriotic. or should i say pathetic. democrats are not going to let this ball get rolling. the democratic national committee said just as the american people fought the republican party's attempts in 2012, we will oppose any future attempts to ignore the wishes of the electorate and make changes to the electoral college for partisan purposes. msnbc's zachary roth reported the virginia bill to change the electoral college in tha
obama. from the death threat to the nation's economic recovery, the issues that matter most to your money. here now tyler mathisen and john harbaugh. >> good morning, everybody, and welcome to cnbc's coverage of the second inauguration of barack obama. the 57th inaugural of an american president. between a half a million and 800,000 people are estimated to attend today's festivities. most of them not very close to the capitol where the swearing in will take place. that's roughly a third of the number who attended president obama's first inauguration four years ago. once again welcome, everybody. i'm tyler mathisen joined by cnbc's chief washington correspondent john harwood. great to be with you on this day of history. >> welcome to d.c. >> good to see you. the oath of office will take place in about 50 minutes, but today, of course, is all about the ceremony. you probably know this already, yesterday chief justice john roberts officially administered the oath in a small, private ceremony in the blue room at the white house as per the constitution. >> this morning the president and
people, medicaid, obama care, things like that. and now you begin to get into bigger numbers, ryan gets 1.5% of gdp, or more than three times of what he saves in medicare, but cutting mostly health care on poor people, about 10% of total savings. then there is everything else, food, education, infrastructure, everything else the federal government does. ryan doesn't really say exactly which programs he is really cutting here. but it is where he is cutting. he gets four and a half times this budget as he does from medicare. it is about half the total cuts and it is a huge cut. we don't know the programs that will get the axe, but he has given us enough detail on it, to say that about two thirds of ryan's budget cuts comes from programs for the poor. but that is quite a bit. and he is still not balancing the budget until 2038. so how is ryan going to take the budget, which is already pretty rough and has pretty unpopular policies in it and get it to balance in ten years as opposed to 30? ironically, one thing that actually helps him a lot is the fiscal cliff deal, because it actually raises
in urban areas, which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> both paul ryan and mitt romney were outspoken about blaming their loss in november on a democratic coalition of women, minorities, and young people in this country. days after the election paul ryan saw a problem with the system. >> there's always an electoral college strategy in winning these things. and you know what states you need to win to get to 270 electoral votes. and when we watch the -- look at the map here, virginia and ohio coming in, and those ones coming in as tight as they were and then looking like we were going to lose them, that was when it game pretty clear to us we weren't going to win. >> paying attention now? now republicans have a new electoral strategy. win as many electoral votes as you can, even if you lose by a very large margin. rnc chair reince priebus announced his intention to pursue the virginia model nationally. and it would have quite an effect. this is the result of the 2012 presidential election. barack obama won 332 electoral votes, beating mitt romney's 206 vote

obama's second term. it it just started with the g.o.p. insisting it's time for congress to finally do its job and you'll hear from senator rob portman and the news media telling president obama to go for the throat of the g.o.p. tonight he's fighting back and blaming his critics, all that and much more ahead. on the record starts right now. >> we should start with spending and debt. >> we haven't had a budget here for almost four years. >> in washington d.c., and i think we can agree on one thing that the worst-run institution in america is the united states congress. we need to do something different. >> i've never had this happen in my lifetime. i've never been alive where there is a genuine viceral fear of action by government against individuals. >> it's my hope that the president will finally be willing to do what republicans have been asking him to do since his first inauguration four years ago. >> i'm very glad that they-- i want to congratulate the house for directing people's attention to the failure of the senate under leader reid to bring us a budget to the floor. >> we sup
